Orthotic Insoles to Emerge as Heavyweights in the Orthopedic Footwear Market: Fact.MR

Rising prevalence of plantar fasciitis has provided significant expansion prospects for key market players, heightening growth prospects

Fact.MR, Rockville: The ongoing research project on orthopedic footwear market undertaken by Fact.MR forecasts a relatively stable outlook for 2021. With the pandemic induced shutdowns being withdrawn, manufacturers are experiencing a resurgence in production cycles, thereby restoring demand-supply gaps. Outlook for the 2021-2031 decade also appears optimistic, as healthcare experts apprehend an increase in orthopedic disorders amongst the global population.

The market is poised to garner significant gains in the future, with preference for orthotic insoles equipped footwear slated to aggrandize. High prevalence of plantar fasciitis is attributed as the primary driver for heightened insoles based shoe sales. The condition affects approximately a tenth of the global population, mostly those affected by severe diabetes.

To capitalize on this trend, manufacturers are incorporating a wide spectrum of production technologies, ranging from automation to additive manufacturing, in order to augment operational capacities and widen revenue pools. Players such as 8sole and Aetrex have been highly active in this regard- the former specializing in advanced biomechanics to reduce pressure exertion and the latter on determining accurate foot size.

“Favorable government policies to promote enhanced orthopedic footwear usage is attracting prominent manufacturers across high potential markets, thereby improving access to previously unavailable management options by patients and consumers,” remarks the Fact.MR analyst.
